Effects of spiritual slavery

*Spiritual slavery is the inability to do right due to the love of sin.

*Most assuredly I tell you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin and a slave does not abide forever but a son abides forever.

*Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.John,8:35-36.

1.Lawlessness-whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness and sin is lawlessness. 1John,3:4

All unrighteousness is sin.1John,5:17

2.Fear and desperation-those who dwell in sin have no time to love. They live in constant fear of judgement.

There is no fear in love;but perfect love casts out fear ,because fear involves torment.1John,4:18

3.Eternal agony-eternal agony is enhanced by constant fear of torment and judgement due to a sinful life.

Consistent lawlessness reduces the ability to do right and increases fear and desperation.

4.Eternal death-for when you were slaves of sin you were free in regard to righteousness.

What fruit did you have then in the things in which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.

For the wages of sin is death. Romans,6:20-23

5.Hatred and all kinds of vices-but if you have envy and self-seeking in your hearts;do not boast and lie against the truth.

This wisdom does not descend from above but is earthly, sensual and demonic.

For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing is there. James,3:14-16

6.Blindness-for judgment I have come into this world,that those who do not see may see and those who see may be made blind. John, 3:39

Jesus said to them,”if you were blind you would have no sin but now you say,”we see”,therefore your sin remains. “John, 9:41.

7.Unsound mind-for God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and love and of a sound mind.2Timothy,1:7.

Just as it’s written:” God has given them a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see and ears that they should not hear, to this day. Romans, 11:8-10.

8.Unending conflicts-where do wars and fights come from among you?Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members?

You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and can not obtain. You fight and war yet you do not have because you do not ask.You ask and you do not receive because you ask amiss that you may spend it on your pleasures.

Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?James,4:1-4.

9.Emptiness-abide in Me and I in you.As the branches cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine,neither can you,unless you abide in Me.John,15:4.

All things were made through Him and without Him nothing was made that was made. John,1:3.

Most assuredly I say to you,the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do,for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. John,5:19.
